Hello
does anyone have any recommendations for French Conversation classes, either one to one or group in SE1? Any pointers much appreciated!
Thanks

I'll be interested in this.

Quand j'etais très jeune j'ai parlé français très bien, mais maintenant je suis vieux et parfois j'oublie les mots.

Any mistakes here, grammar, spelling, whatever, give me a break, I'm not bad for an old cab driver who paid attention in school years ago.

Morley college to tons of French conversation classes.

Five pages of classes there, several of conversation.


There are some more informal/social groups here

though they're not necessarily in SE1.

Or just keep your ears open....on my way from Bermondsey Street to Maltby Street a few Saturday mornings ago (I know, I know...), I heard exclusively French being spoken, mostly by young families. That's two demographic observations for the price of one.

I have long thought that Bermondsey is to London what <<le Marais>> is to Paris.

I enjoyed taking Italian lessons from these guys and they have French as well:

Not SE1 but a short trip across the river.

As the literal translation of un marais is a marsh, or a swamp, I'm not sure how the good burghers of Bermondsey would take that!

Given a knowledge of the history of the area, they would regard it as entirely appropriate. The area was once a mix of marsh & gravel with a few drier patches where settlement first appeared.

Slightly o/t but I do Spanish classes at Morley and can recommend them.

I have a great French teacher. I have had many french teachers in the past and I have to say she is by far the best. If you are interested, I can send you her contact details by Private message.
